From eSports to Wireless: Intel Discusses Their Own VR Focus

The Director of Intel’s VR Center of Excellence talks about their VR plans

The Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) has had swathes of new virtual reality (VR) news, and of course Intel have brought their very best to the table. We caught up with Intel’s Kim Pallister, Director of Intel’s VR Center of Excellence, and he spoke to us about what Intel had to show us at E3 2017.

Intel wants to move into esports and introduce competitive gaming to VR. They’re working with Ready at Dawn on Echo Arena, the recently announced competitive VR shooter, and launching the VR Challenger League.

Echo Arena already looks like a great, compelling VR experience, and with Intel’s support we’re hoping it becomes one of VR’s premier experience. We played it at E3 2017 and said; “Of all the many videogame titles that have assured they’ll be the one to break the mould, it’s Ready at Dawn and CCP Games that are most likely to attract that highly competitive audience.”

Check out our full interview with Pallister below, where he shares all the best of what Intel has brought to E3 in 2017.
